The country star recently broke her wrist in a fall outside her home and had to undergo surgery and cancel several appearances as a result. To thank her fans, Underwood took to social media to share a message after her win.
"So amazing!!! Thank you, fans, for this!" the singer wrote. "I so wanted to go to the #AMAs just in case because I know how hard you've been voting. I'm sorry I couldn't get up there and thank you all on stage...you guys are incredible and am so thankful for you!"
Underwood previously shared a health update with fans last week, writing that she'll "be setting off airport metal detectors from now on."
"I'm so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family & friends who've been taking such great care of me," she tweeted.
The singer's husband, former NHL player Mike Fisher, also shared a message to fans last week, thanking them for the "tremendous love and support" Underwood had received.
